Procedure Standards

Procedure standards help identify elements of the procedure that are most important in obtaining a high-quality examination, while simultaneously controlling costs. Use of standardized procedures will increase the applicability of clinical research among multiple institutions, in turn, increasing the value of research studies, particularly in the field of technology assessment. SNMMI offers procedure standards in the following areas:

Cardiovascular System
Endocrine System
Gastrointestinal System
Genitourinary System
Infection and Inflammation

Skeletal System
Central Nervous System
Pulmonary System
EANM Guidelines
Collaborative Guidelines
Retired Guidelines
Guidelines Available for Public Comment

Maintenance of Certification

Maintenance of Certification (MOC) is a comprehensive programs to assess the ongoing competence of physician specialists and their ability to provide quality health care in six general competencies:

 • Medical knowledge
 • Patient care
 • Interpersonal and communication skills
 • Professionalism
 • Practice-based learning and improvements
 • System-based practice
In the past, the certification process required successful completion of an approved educational program, an unrestricted medical license as evidence of professional standing, and passing the certification examination. Now nuclear medicine professionals can no longer simply take an exam to renew a certificate; lifelong learning must be documented.
The American Board of Nuclear Medicine (ABNM) MOC program is a process designed to document that nuclear medicine physicians maintain the necessary competencies to provide quality patient care in nuclear medicine. It is now an ongoing process and will require the assessment and improvement of practice performance by nuclear medicine physicians, as well as other physician specialists who wish to be certified, and/or maintain their certification, in nuclear medicine.
